Clipper delivers fast and selective control of tough invasive
and nuisance plants such as cabomba, watermeal, Eurasian
watermilfoil, water lettuce, duckweed, giant salvinia and more.
Plus, Clipper dissipates quickly from the water column and does not
accumulate in sediment. And, Clipper offers reduced PPE
requirements 51% WDG formulation for easier application and
Valent® Clipper™ Aquatic Herbicide is formed into quick-dissolve
granules that mix effortlessly in water eliminating messy and
difficult applications. It is a broad spectrum, contact herbicide
containing the active ingredient Flumioxazin.
Flumioxazin should be applied to actively growing plants and a
surfactant will be needed if the herbicide is applied foliage of
floating or emergent plants. Water pH needs to be below 8.5* or
flumioxazin will rapidly degrade and lose effectiveness.
*If pH is above 8.5, adding muriatic acid to your mix tank will
lower pH below the desired range. The pH of the mix MUST be within
5-7 on the day of application for this product to effective.
Purchasing a fish aquarium pH test kit (roughly $10) will allow you
to test your spray solution before application. Water chemistry is
variable and changes depending on the water temperature, rain,
wind, and biotic processes, so pH testing must be done before each
application. Be careful while handling (muriatic acid is a strong
Clipper™ Aquatic Herbicide by Valent® is available in a 5 pound
container that is capable of treating ponds up to 5 acres when used
in surface applications. Valent® Clipper™ can be mixed with water
and applied using a chemical sprayer.
It is extremely important to distribute this product evenly.
Clipper may be applied as either a subsurface application for
submerged vegetation such as milfoil or as a surface application
for duckweed or watermeal.
Clipper Example: Rate examples below are average label
Surface applications are not dependent on depth. 6-12 ounces of
clipper should be applied per acre for foliar (surface)
Use of a non-ionic surfactant such
as Cygnet Plus is highly recommended. Begin Clipper application as
early in the morning as possible on a calm, sunny day.
Begin application in spring as
water temperature warms to 60º F and above. Early treatment when
growth first appears or begins to create a nuisance will reduce the
amount of CLIPPER needed. Early treatment will also reduce the
amount of dead growth.
Heavy, out of control growth may
require more than one application or physical removal to gain
control. Apply early on the morning of a calm, sunny day. Several
hours of contact time is needed.
*All pesticides can be harmful to health and the environment
if misused. Read the label and follow directions. Consult with your
local regulatory agency before applying herbicides and algaecides
to public waters. There are herbicides from other states that are
either not licensed in Wisconsin or Illinois, or are not
recommended by ABI.
A WI DNR Aquatic Plant Control Permit or
DATCP Fish Farm License is required in WI in order to apply
algaecides or herbicides. In addition ponds and lakes with
overflows not contained on the property are required to obtain a WPDES
permit. Illinois Residents are required to obtiain NPDES
permits through the Illinois EPA.
In order to apply chemicals in
liquid form within Wisconsin, the applicator must be licensed with
